KANSAS CITY, Mon. – – Patrick Mahomes is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday for the lawn toe injury that the Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback late in the season and during the NFL playoffs, a source confirmed to ESPN.
According to a source, Mahomes is expected to miss most of the off-season work with the team but will make full use of the training camp.
Mahomes had one of the worst statistical games of his career with the Chiefs 31-9 Super Bowl LV loss to the Tampa Bay privateers. He was 26 of 49 for 270 yards, zero touchdowns, two interceptions, and a passerby rating of 52.3. Kansas City failed to score a touchdown for the first time since Mahomes started out in 2018.
But, as he discovered shortly after the game, he played well with his toe in the AFC Championship Game win over the game Buffalo Bills.
“I can’t say the toe was a problem when I played two weeks ago and I played well on it,” he said. “Every time you play football you have to fight your way through injuries.”
NFL Network first reported news from the operation.
